This is a patented mineral property. The Alma is located in high country Colorado at 12,753' in elevation just north of Mt. Sherman. The Alma is not part of the conservation and recreation easement that exists in much of the area and is open for development. The property is located on the backside of the Iowa Amphitheater where the Continental Chief Mine is located. The Continental Chief is known for being one of the largest silver producers on the mountain.
The Alma has two old shafts on the property, these are both largely collapsed. The dumps from the shafts show auriferous pyrite on quartz with galena. There have been successful placer operations in the region, from the Alma all the way down Sacramento creek with significant placer recovery. There is a stream that runs nearly year round most years, this is a run off from the glacial snows on the peaks of the 14ers. There are flats where you could build or put temporary housing.
Some mining relics, an old ore bucket and some ore car axles and wheels. The terrain is decent for access overall. There is a lot of talus. There is also some dense vegetation, aspens and other high country bushes and trees. At the west edge of the property it is barren and very steep. There may be remains of an adit on this side that leads to the Continental Chief Mine, it is collapsed but old maps show a tunnel cutting out on this side.
